Seeking refuge from Satan when reciting the Quran

Since 2014-01-09

Is it necessary for someone to seek refuge from Satan before reading every chapter of the Qur’ân if he is reading more than one chapter in one sitting?


Sheikh `Umar al-Muqbil, professor at al-Imâm University

You do not have to seek refuge from Satan upon arriving at each new chapter in your reading. You should say it when you begin reading.

Allah says: “When thou dost read the Qur’ân, seek Allah’s protection from Satan, the rejected one.” [Sûrah al-Nahl: 98].

When you begin to read another chapter, you can start with invoking allah's name: “Bism Allah al-Rahmân al-Rahîm”.

And Allah knows best.
